Killing Your Giant (Part 2)
“And Saul said to David, "You are not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him, for you are but a youth, and he has been a man of war from his youth." But David said to Saul, "Your servant used to keep sheep for his father. And when there came a lion, or a bear, and took a lamb from the flock, I went after him and struck him and delivered it out of his mouth. And if he arose against me, I caught him by his beard and struck him and killed him. Your servant has struck down both lions and bears, and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, for he has defied the armies of the living God." And David said, "The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine." And Saul said to David, "Go, and the Lord be with you!"”
1 Samuel 17:33-37 ESV
Second key to killing your giant:
David knew who He was and knew who His God was because of relationship. All the times out being a shepherd taught Him that not by might but by His Spirit. When you are hooked up to God’s power source, You know that you are able to do mighty things. David had a secret weapon, worship. He taught us a valuable lesson in all the Psalms that is recorded in the Bible. Read them, I encourage you. You can read that life is hard and it is not a fairytale. In history he is valued as the King of Israel but you can read where he only had strength through His relationship with God.
Today let’s put our focus on our quiet time. This is where you enter into relationship, time alone with God empowers us and we are stronger connected to His power source.
